    Kidney stones

    Does anybody know if chemo can cause kidney stones? I had them 5 years ago after chemo and now I have them again, after chemo!

      Yes it could increase a person's risk for kidney stones, from what I have read, due to increased uric acid. Although, yours is the first time I have seen this in our experiences with cancer over the past few years.

      If you click on the experiences tab at the top of the page, then type in kidney stones you will get 8 responses or "experiences" that people talk about kidney stones. Just another bit of information for you.
